My name is Holly, I came to Rowena to discuss ongoing problems with my bowel movements, strong bloating and pain. We came to the conclusion that a GI Map would be the best course of action to move forward. I, at first, was a bit hesitant because of the price of the test but thought I needed to get this sorted as a normal GP wouldn’t really help and I have family stomach issues. My results came back as leaky gut syndrome so I have cut out gluten, sugar, dairy, nightshades and legumes. I also now take the probiotic to rebalance the levels in the gut. I feel so much better, my symptoms have all but disappeared, I have lost weight and can have a relatively normal day now that’s not disrupted by toilet breaks and feeling tight and bloated. At first the diet felt so restricting but now I have started exploring other options and recipes I feel like I have come on leaps and bounds in the kitchen and have a new found enjoyment for preparing and eating my own guilt free meals!
